Same story, different year. Way behind on the blog, but feel like keeping with tradition so here you go. Going to skip the "Year in Pictures" post for this year, if you want to see images of 2018, check out my Instagram @BW_TRI. So let's dive into what 2018 looked like from the training side of things.

Why was the overall training volume down? Quite simple, getting hit by a car and breaking your clavicle and radial head takes you out of training for ~10 weeks.
Overall Thoughts? There was some really good training going on, with quite a bit of consistency. I caught a bit of bad luck early in the season with food poisoning and then a bit too much travel when heading to Vietnam, getting on the start line completely exhausted. Things were headed back in the right direction and then WHAM that damn car hit me and there the season went.
